The Philadelphia Story, GFF24 at CCA

8 March, 2024

CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3JD

Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart star as a dynamic threesome in this comedic romp. On the day before her wedding, an ex-husband (Grant) and an undercover journalist (Stewart) turn up on the door of a wealthy socialite (Hepburn).

The Philadelphia Story was Katharine Hepburn’s hit comeback after she was labelled ‘box office poison’ in 1938 (along with her co-stars of this season Garbo and Dietrich). Her performance as the socialite Tracy Lord captures her most intriguing characteristics as a sporty tomboy who refuses be confined by her gender. Hepburn’s androgyny and insistence on wearing of trousers despite scorn from the studios and press certainly raised eyebrows at the time.
